they say go to hell. >> we'll have more from foer mayor guiliani. >> should the government be in the sports business? >> the debate heating up as lang armstrong scandal comes down. the postoffice paid 30 million to sponsor the team. you say the buck stops here. >> well, it is insane. can you imagine? taxpayers paying into the federal government that is sponsoring sports teams. give me a break. this is a dumbest thing i ever heard . it is outrageous and the federal government is out of control and spending money on things like that. we have in certain places where arms of the federal government are going in and lobbying the congress and spending more tax money. this is crazy and the thing about lance armstrong and where they paid 30 million. get them out of the business. >> and by the way, the inspector general said they may be out of business unless it is a bail out and it is a mess and they are paying for sports team. >> look at the 70s 80s 90s and how it is cleaned up leading by the national football league and now all major sports organization are cleaning up their own system. the group
sure the government does not shut down. he tried to take that specter off the table. but this is a very tough fight that's getting more and more problematic, larry, because the president said he's going to break the habit of crisis-driven fiscal negotiations. if he's going to succeed in that, somebody is going to have to break and it may have to be soon because treasury secretary geithner said this afternoon we could hit the debt ceiling and exhaust all the extraordinary measures he's been taking as soon as one month from now. >> you know, john, 2010, 2011, the 2012 he negotiated. he voted against the debt ceiling i believe in 2006. why all of a sudden does he not want have to have negotiations? >> i think will's happened, larry, is that the president spent 2011 and 2012 with republicans squeezing him on his priorities, having opposed him during the first two years of his presidency. then that really had the wind at their back. the tea party election of 2010 had given republicans very big numbers on the hill. and he's decided that he backed up, and he backed up and he backed up, and he'
he does not want spending caughts and i dare say he would be happy to see in reverses in government spending. so that does not jive with what the house is doing. >> that is a fair point. some critics say inside of the house conference there is a real fight. they want to take these bold stances on the ten year balanced budget so they can get some leverage to fund the government when it comes up for a vote in a couple of week. >> no, i think they are doing the lord's work. thank you very much. we have a couple of special guests to tell us more. democrat from vermont, shawn duffy, republican from wisconsin. to both of you gentlemen friends of this show i wish you a happy new year. mr. boehner attached a bublg et to this. >> there are no specific cuts. where in medicare or the pentagon are they going to cut? they have to specify that before you can have a serious conversation. i don't think members of congress should be playing with fiscal fire which is what we are doing when we use a tactic as a threat to plunge america into defought. i believe that republicans and democrats should den
limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight. [applause] >> good to be with you, governor. i must say that was a terrific lead-in and one i kind of wish the
crisis. what are the consequences? welcome. i'm ali velshi. the government has paid its bills on time for 237 years and now congress is threatening to blow it. earlier this week, the ratings agency fitch threatened to downgrade america's sovereign credit rating if washington failed to resolve the issue in a timely manner. s&p downgraded america's perfect credit rating back in august of 2011. fitch didn't do it at the time. but the last time we had one of these debt ceiling debacles that embarrassment was the first downgrade of u.s. credit in history. if congress doesn't act and we default for the first time ever, the consequences are likely to be severe for all of us. federal interest costs would likely rise, business and personal borrowing costs would probably follow. it would also make the struggle to manage our historic debt levels tougher. the worst thing that can happen if you're beck lg under debt, is for your interest rate to go up. it could mean higher taxes and more cults to programs and services from the government. any hope for a controlled fix to our debt problem would be
the spending cut fight on the upcoming continuing resolution to fund the government. >> i didn't hear any focus on spending cuts. and i didn't hear any focus on the sequester. and i'm looking at rasmussen polls that show me that the public wants across-the-board spending cuts. and you and i both know the republican base is hungry for that after getting hosed in that high tax bill. >> i think you're a bit off, larry, respectfully in that republicans i think want to have these spending cuts. but they're picking a strategic battle. and you could be right in saying they're picking the wrong battle. but they don't want to have the spending battle on the debt limit. they want to have it on the cr, that continuing resolution to fund the government for the rest of the year. >> well, i am 100% -- look, i do not want to mess with the debt ceiling. i don't want to mess with that. that's a domestic and international global meltdown. so to that extent i agree. i just didn't hear the rest of the story laid out very coherently regarding spending. i didn't hear it from paul ryan, and i didn't hear it from the
's it for "the five." >> bret: should a government drowning in a sea of red ink take on more help to victims of the superstorm sandy? that is a battle right now on the floor of the house of representatives. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ good evening. i'm bret baier. right now, behind me, the house is engaged in a battle that serves as a microcosm for epic struggle of the nation's soaring debt. on one side, the president, democrats and some republicans from the region affected who want to spend billions helping storm victims. on the other, other republicans who say much of the money many this latest bill is targeted elsewhere. and that any funds should be offset with cuts. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel has update tonight from capitol hill. good evening,be mike. >> reporter: good evening. with debt and spending expected to be the major fight for much of the year, today it is disaster relief money for the northeast following sandy. that is in the middle of the struggle. >> tragedy like hurricane sandy shouldn't be used as an excuse for a grab bag of spending having nothing
down the cost of health care, even in the private sector as well. >> when is the government -- when is the government ever done that? with george bush's plan, you were critical and had a right to be for prescription drug benefit. the argument ises that it would drive down the cost of those drugs. if anything they have soared since that benefit came in because the government cannot act as a source of even buying in bulk for cutting prices. >> that's exactly right. and in fact i'm also supportive of legislation that would allow medicare, just leak the veterans administration to negotiate with the manufacturers, the drug companies, for lower drug prices. and i guess the point is that there are -- >> it doesn't work. didn't work in the case of drug prescriptions. if you were to expand this to care, what -- >> no, no. >> what is the chance you would get more bang for the buck? >> here's the difference. if medicare were allowed to negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies it would work, and again, that estimate is about over ten years, about $200 billion in lower prices that the federal
the government takes in "x" number of dollars and it's lg willing to borrow "x" number of dollars, for the ceiling. for every $6 of $steb, it's borrowed money! we are spending less than we are taking in in revenue. at this point, that comes home to haunt you. i am saying the victims didn't nide the money, we don't need to spend $16 billion on things that don't have to do with victims. >> neil: bottom line, if there are other storms, we don't have a rainy-day fund. >> we don't. we can't by law have a rainy-delay fund -- have a rainy-day fund. wall street's numbers are down, in terms of taxes that we are collecting. the city's going to have to make up billions of dollars this year. what's the federal government going to do when that money is not in the coffers? >> neil: thank you very much. meanwhile, looking live at yet another school shooting at st. louis. this one, ahead of the president's new gun control plan. we are on at the eve of his assault weapons assault. how this and this debate could affect us. much more. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mm
. >> the american government now warning of more kidnapping threats on westerners and conor powell has our coverage from the middle east bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest today? >> the fighting may be over but there is a lot of question hes and concerns and also confusion about what exactly happened and what is going on and who is alive and who is dead. now, according to algerian officials they are in the bp gas plant and searching for are mines and booby traps that they believe have been laid by the islamic militants. they also are finding bodies, dozens of bodies. according to an algerian television station they are finding dozens of bodies but they are so badly damaged they can't tell if they are members of the terrorist cell that took over the facility or if they are foreign hostages. the algerian government is saying that all 32 militants were killed on the final raid by algerian forces but they also say the death toll s at 23. it could be 25. and it likely will increase over the next couple days as they begin to figure out who was killed and who was not. now, also the details are very,
by the way sends much more money to the federal government than it gets back, we just want them to be more urgent, and concerned. families that lost their houses, blocks that were destroyed. it is ridiculous that we're still debating this, especially looking at some of the congress people who are doing this. in my opinion, it is shameless, when their states were not seeing the same set of crises, they were the first to ask for resources. they should pull together, stand up, do the right thing. to me right now, at the end of a very long day i'm frustrated. i'm angry, we should all stand up for each other in times of crisis. this is so un-american in my opinion. >> newark's mayor, cory booker, gets tonight's last word. >> thank you. >> "the ed show" is up next. >>> good evening americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the gop is still holding the american economy hostage, and president obama says they wouldn't collect a ransom. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a dead beat nation. >> the president dra
the constitution. members spent 1:05 reciting the entire u.s. constitution. it's the basis of our government, of course, but this is only the second time ever the entire document was read aloud in the house. >> we the people of the united states in order to form a more perfect union -- >> no person except a natural-born citizen shall be eligible to the office of president. >>> the powers to all cases of law and equity. >> full faith and credit given in each state to the public acts. >> congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the united states. >> the validity of the public debt of the united states authorized by law shall not be questioned. >> the right of citizens of the united states to vote shall not be denied on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude. >> the right of the citizens of the united states to vote shall not be denied on account of sex. >> the 18th article of the amendment to the constitution of the
said it's an ode to big government and you pointed out in the list, gun control, gay marriage, global warming, he not only wants to lock in every liberal agenda item, but advance it further. will he be successful? second term are notoriously not successful. >> let's add global climate warming on her, climate change. we've already passed this through the congress. it's done. is congress going to pass it? is congress going to tell the states, no, you can't put that past voter i.d. laws? only in it's bipartisan doesn't require amnesty and citizenship. gun control passed, no. i think the president was basically declaring his administration is no longer substantive achievement. it's make the democratic party and making the republicans look more extreme. taking their strength to pass positive items that pile up over in the senate never to be really considered, but give them an agenda, a view that says to the american people he's over there worried about gun control. we're worried about getting jobs. he's over there worried about trying to get gay marriage. we want prosperity for your family
was worn some as the 40th president of the united states ushering in an era of limited government and the rise of the modern conservative movement. yesterday barack obama, the 44th president of the united states, was sworn in for his second term. the moment that will define progressive politics m years to come and one that symbolizes a renewed faith and the power of the american government. needless to say, it was a day several decades in the making. >> for the first time in history government, the people said, was not our master. it is our servant. >> government is not the problem, and government is not the solution. we, the american people, we are the solution. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sapp our nation. they strengthen us. they do not make us a taker of nags. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> as he made a forceful case for economic equality and the social safety net president obama championed the american belief in equality of race, gender, and sexual orientation,
that we've had is that the western government that had citizens in algeria, they weren't given much information on what was going on the ground. many countries weren't given a heads-up that a raid was being launched. this type of information we're getting right now really is not helping the families who don't know about their loved ones. over the course of next 48 hours we hope it will get better but it appears algeria isn't prepared or able to provide the type of information that loved ones and western governments really need to sort this out. >> gregg: coner, thanks very much. >> heather: next-door in mali go a setback to terrorists linked to al-qaeda now retreating after days of french air strikes. the military in mali says they are complete control there. streets reportedly a landscape of burned out vehicles and destroyed weapons. a spokesman for the french forces is sounding a more cautious note saying it's not clear all the militants have left. french forces are moving northward into rebel held territory. >> gregg: more turmoil in the region. new violence erupting in egypt. pr
kathy rogers told "political" i think it is possible we would shut down the government to make sure that president obama understands that we're serious. well, i guess that would do it. we always talk about whether or not we're going to kick the can down the road. i think the mood is that we have come to the end of the road. what road? and republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee said this to msnbc's chris jansing. let me ask you if you're willing to shut the government down? >> we're looking at all the options, there is the option of government shutdown, the option of raising the debt ceiling in short-term increments. i think there is a way to avoid default if it requires shutting down portions of the government. let's look at that. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful
enforcement. keeping data on where the guns are. the government stopped keeping those records in 2004 and improving the background check system. so there's more sharing of information. joe, the other path forward would be congressional action and we're told that the president will push for an assault weapons ban and expansion of the gun sales of all kinds. even if i tried to sell you a gun privately, that would require a background check and then limit the sale of high-capacity magazines. those are some of the major issues. we expect to hear the president outline tomorrow, joe. >> jess, is this the kitchen sink or are there things they held back on? >> reporter: well, what the president is describing it as is comprehensive and these are issues that they prioritize. i expect that the white house is is going to place a serious emphasis on this high-capacity magazine issue. i'm told that in private meeting the vice president has emphasized that the high capacity magazine could make as much of a difference, more of a difference, maybe, than any other pressure. he has pointed out to multip
with heavy guns, and with hostages. it was a bloody scene. the algerian government says that 11 militants were killed, apparently the last militants there, but also, the seven foreign hostages were killed. now, the reuters news agency quoting a security source says that 16 foreign hostages were freed today and included in that number, two americans. but as we've noted it's not yet confirmed by washington, and or for that matter, picked up by other media agencies. one american has died in this four-day long saga, the texan who died of a heart attack, at least five others were free. all told, throughout this whole thing, dozens of foreign hostages have died and as well as dozens of hostages. secretary of defense leon panetta was in london today and he had some very strong words for those responsible for this attack. >> cannot accept attacks against our citizens and our interests abroad. neither can we accept an al-qaeda safe haven anywhere in the world. . >> reporter: and panetta was asked about the algerian forces tactics throughout this and criticized by various countries, a bit heavy-ha
that govern guns and ammo with executive orders. but this weekend republican senator lindsay graham says an executive order like that would have bipartisan opposition in the congress. one of the gop officers in the senate explained why. >> he said a day or two ago he didn't think the senate would be voting on the gun legislation. that doesn't mean the president has the right to go beyond the constitution. >> this morning's announcement who wrote letters about concerns. it was 33 days ago. >> peter doocy reporting for us live this morning. >> this gun debate is a big talker this morning as well. last night on "hannity" things got very heated during a debate over the new york state gun law that just passed yesterday. >> hannity going head to head about democratic state senator over the state's new regulation. >> you tell me how this law makes it safer for a stay at home mom or maybe a woman who lives at home after a divorce because of a restraining order how does that make them safer? >> it makes it harder with the person with the restraining order against them to do damage to this woman.
said anybody who is suggesting a government gun grab is all wrong. >> those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of beginning gwinning up fn the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all of your guns away. the nra said they should talk to people buying firearms and ask them why they are buying firearms. september 2012 marked the heist number ever of background checks for gun purchases in the country's history up 50 percent from the december before. >> we heard today from some of the parents of sandy hook. what are they saying? >> sandy hook promise. some say they themselves are gun owners they are comfortable talking about that but want to have a bigger responsibility about gun violence as a whole. they don't want their children's lives to be lost in veiain. they want to see change. >> here is jeremy richmond who lost his young daughter. >> we need to face and take action on hard issues. there is not going to be one simple solution. we feel it is essential to get a deep understanding of mental healt
access to gu guns, and tougher punishments for people who bring guns near schools. >> i think government should sponged at the time. we all know we don't need another tragedy to point out the problems in the system. >> he wasn't the first person we heard that from yesterday. for the first time we heard powerful stories from the victims' families who have come together to make what's called the sandy hook promise, encouraging common-sense solutions to prevent another tragedy. rachel maddow talked to a couple. >> this is tough, but he said you promised you would protect us. >> yeah. >> and i did promise him that. >> sure. >> so what do i say to him? i can't change what happened. i know it wasn't our fault, we just sent him to school. >> i want to bring in "new york times" columnist nicksh and good morning to both of you. as the white house considers they actions, you already have a texas congressman saying -- i'm going to quote him here -- i will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary including by not definding the white house, even filing articles of impeachment. nick, does thi
of the state. at the time that you're talking about in 1787, the government had muskets and individuals had muskets, there was a very close correlation between the power to use violence on both sides. the other thing that you have to take into account, this is something i haven't heard in this debate, if you look basically to the middle of the 19th century, 1862, winchester henry rifle, report on that rifle that i just cited in a recent paper showed that it fired 15 rounds in less than ten seconds. the fact of the matter is that repeating technology is 150 years old. and one of the worries here, i think, for people on the other side of this is that when we go through this bad gun analysis that there's not really a solid boundary between the current category of assault weapons, particularly rifles and any other gun that is out there. >> why ban machine guns then? >> machine guns were banned in 1934 as a result of the national firearms act. i think you can make a coherent distinction between semi automatic firing and automatic firing. >> explain to me the distinction between an m-16, military
wants results and they want results in their jobs, in their lives. they want the government just to work better. and i think that is the big disconnect right now with washington because, you know, republicans are wondering how much leverage they have to force the president to deal with spending, for instance. do they sort of wait him out and hope for a positive result in 2014 and use whatever leverage over the del ceiling or whatever else but the public finds it so distasteful. the president too on issues like entitlement, i think it's really striking, will he seek to rise above how difficult it is that he doesn't feel he's got a negotiating partner to try to get something done on entitlements? if he wants robust economic growth he'll have to. we will have a debate over guns and the debt between ted cruz, fresh face, tea party face from texas. >> old school/new school. >> and chuck schumer from new york and our political roundtable as well where we'll look at the big challenges. >> in urban america is one place on guns and rural america and the south another. >> see you sunday. >> thanks

the president calls very significant in relief and also the three government chos have done a great job on the storm. >> i'm glad you brought up the fact that this was the old congress. but i want to play for our audience something you said during that initial debate with old congress and then i'll ask you about it. >> this is a total, total disaster in helping those people that we are purposely saying today in uponity if i indicate building we're helping them, isn't that wonderful. what's our jobs? we're not doing anybody any favors. that's why we are september here. try it once in a while. democracy. you may like it. >> pretty good stuff. an impassioned plea and yet still 67% of your compatriots still voted no to that package. do you have a lot of faith this this new portion will pass? >> we've been working through yesterday and last night through the rules committee. we're 90 amendments, many to distract us from what we should be doing. our responsibility is to keep those in deep need, regardless whether happens in florida, whether it happens in the plains in the west, mid jersey, th

"outfront" tonight, war in mali. a deadly conflict between al qaeda militants and the government is getting violent. they're threatening to take control of the entire country. the militants' move prompted france to take action over the weekend. they put boots on the ground and went all in, bombing rebel training camps and other targets. so what will the united states do? a pentagon official told me this afternoon that the u.s. will participate in mali, but, and i want to make sure i put quotes around this, it's still deciding what that looks like. when we went to the mali border last summer, i saw first hand how dangerous the situation is. today, we spoke to some of our sources on the ground, including the military commander of the al qaeda's linked group. he told us that the militants are, in his words, excited and would welcome u.s. troops on the gro
in on the debt ceiling themselves, believing a fight over funding the government is a much better political fight for their party. here's congresswoman marsha blackburn yesterday. >> i think there is a way to avoid default. if it requires shutting down certain portions of the government, let's look at that. >> yesterday the president sounded almost resign to the idea a government shutdown is probably coming up. >> if the republicans in congress made a decision they want to shouldn't down the government in order to get their way, then they have the -- votes at least in the house of representatives probably to do that. i think that would be a mistake. and it would be profoundly damaging to our economy. >> once again, what the white house was trying to signal on debt limit in government shutdown is this. they are not going the try to help republicans find a way out of it. they have to own debt limit and republican leaders know they need to move off of debt limit. they are trying to find a way out of it. the white house was also saying, hey, we know will is a negotiating -- debate and fight coming on
, and the man the government reluctantly accepted as its negotiator walked out of a mountaintop cabin late this afternoon hand in hand. >> he didn't come out. we went in. and we hugged each other. and we kissed the girls and hugged them. and it's a very emotional thing. >> it was 11 days ago when the siege in northern i'd began. weaver, his wife, three kids, and a friend were found hiding in a remote cabin not far from the canadian border. weaver was wanted on charges of selling sawed-off shotguns. there was a shootout, and a federal marshal was killed. the next day weaver's wife was killed. a son killed. and a friend wounded. northern idaho is a hotbed for anti-government sentiment. and as the siege dragged on a vigil of angry supporters watched the authorities' every move. >> so bo gritz, presidential candidate that year, ended up playing this key role in ending this horrible standoff. but the standoff, it lasted for 11 days, and it did become a cause celebre for a very angry portion of the very far right anti-government fringe in this country. that was ruby ridge. less than a year later

. according to algerian government officials, they are saying that both militants and foreign hostages were killed in today's final attack. the government just in the past two hours or so are coming up with what they call is provisional final death figures. 32 militants they say were killed in the four-day siege and 23 hostages including foreigners. as for the americans we were were just talking to the state department. they are still not putting out numbers. we know that one person died. he from texas. we have been reporting five americans had escaped and we believed the two remaining americans, this is as of last night, were still being held. today the reuters news agency says two americans were freed today but we have no confirmation and no one sells saying that. leon panetta is in london today and has stern words about those he feels was behind this attack. >> at 9/11 we made very clear that nobody is going to attack the united states of america and get away with it. for that reason we have made a commitment that we're going to go after al-qaeda wherever they are. >> reporter: he was as
of these lawsuits? >> he will pay back some. he will settle. the government settles these sort of cases. let's say he loses 50 million bucks, he still has a fair amount. he's not going to starve. more importantly, he will have his narrative back, his life as a competitive athlete back. the question is, is he going to apologize to the people he hurt along the way? we talk about this as if he's the only part of the story. in fact, he's not. the story is much bigger than just him. >> he has great pr. but, as you and i talked about before, juliette, he was a jerk to an awful lot of people. i mean, he sought to destroy people who would testify against him, who had spoken the truth. >> i think jerk is an understatement. i think a lot of those people are devastated right now. and i don't really know what to think when he's calling some of these people up to apologize. i actually spoke to a few people he has reached out to and they're like dumbfounded. they don't know whether to believe him or not. >> did you see him threaten people, reporters who reported things that he felt were inappropriate? >> well,
, the hostage takers claim to have killed 35 hostages and now the algerian government is for the first time admitting there were casualties that resulted from their raid. our sister network sky news said there were reports of a large explosion at the facility a little over two hours ago. what we can confirm is that a little after 7:00 a.m. eastern time, the algerian military opened fire at the facility using helicopter gunships. they were trying to -- it was a raid that went wrong, but they are still encircling the facility. >> what, if anything, is the u.s. military doing to help? >> no u.s. troops have been sent into algeria. we do know that one u.s. drone was repositioned over the facility there. we confirmed that from u.s. officials. that drone is unarmed but is taking visuals of the facility. there are u.s. troops on standby, commanders and forces on standby in germany, but it has not been given permission, we're told, from the algerians for any u.s. forces to go in and help the algerians, have essentially turn down offers of u.s. help. we know there's a national mission, tier one grou
of our constitution framed our government in 18 pages. there should be symposiums to help the reporters to do a more responsible job of covering healthcare. frankly they were somewhat come police it in the public getting bamboozled. >> neil: here is what is scary. here is what should be pushing and you should be saying. you missing the good in this. maybe other things that i am not aware of, but my point is that is a little weird? >> yes, bu where is the reporters when it comes to looking at the facts. remember the president saying skyrocketing health spending. that was the word the white house used every single day. they were on message, skyrocketing healthcare costs. the president told us domestic crisis of our time. we have to pass the affordable care act because the burden on families in the nation is so great. in fact healthcare spending was increase more slowly in 2009, 2010, 2011 than at any time at any time in 9 last half century. anesthesia reversing drugs but the fact is now that the government says wait until you see the skyrocketing health care under obamacare. >> neil: agai
the question, what do you do now when you have to govern? but it is not just a question that affects winners, sometimes losers of elections have to ask what do we do now? and for them the question can be harder to answer, after all, the winner in theory should do whatever they promise to voters. but the losers just watch them say no, take the republican party, they just lost the 2012 election at every federal level, they lost the presidency, at the senate, and fewer votes than democrats did in the house of representatives. but due to the way the house districts are drawn, they're still in charge. so they're in kind of a weird position. the argument lost, the american people didn't want what they were selling. but they're not out of office, their constituents want them to fight for their ideals. what do you do now? how do you balance losing the national election and losing the argument but still being in power? over the last couple of days, house republicans have been gathered in williamsburg, virginia to try to sort that out. and discussions have started on what not to do. now, number one, d
is all about. people who maintain an almost total skepticism about what government can accomplish for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use
have change being a grassroots entity but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immigration reform, bank regulations, and so on down the list. it was a progressive case but it wasn't necessarily the big government case. >> let's talk about some examples. i think you know them. the right wing ideas of rights is leave me alone, i got enough guns here in this house to hold you off for a couple days anyway if the government comes in with helicopters. progressives' idea of rights is couple young people would like to go to the university of mississippi tp it took the federal troops to go in there to get them in the door. a governor named george wallace tried to stop people at the door at the university of alabama, they had to be pushed aside. that's an aggress
